Change is Constant

And there has been some significant changes to the fee structure for the BC MSP (British-Columbia Medical Services Plan)

"For those lower income households who are under MSP Premium Assistance, MSP may cover $23 per acupuncture treatment, up to a limit of 10 visits per year (with the 10 visit limit being shared by acupuncture, massage therapy, naturopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, and non-surgical podiatry).

The main change that affects acupuncture treatment is that more people may qualify for the MSP Premium Assistance plan. The new annual family income limit has been raised to $42,000 (up from $30,000). Rates are calculated on the previous tax year, so if you think you may now qualify, more info on MSP Premium Assistance can be found here."

Your body naturally produces Hyaluronic Acid (HA) to maintain and regulate internal bodily moisture, which is essential for the healthy functioning of our joints and tissues. HA can naturally break down with age, inflammation, compression and oxidation. HA provides support to the muscles, enabling them to support the tension and abuse that comes with physical exertion, workouts along with general, everyday wear and tear. 
The importance of HA (Hyaluronic Acid) in the body is undeniable and its presence is ubiquitous. HA lasts only a few days in our bodies and skin, therefore requires constant replenishing. 
Essentially, HA Whole Body liquid is motor oil for the joints.
It is tasteless and colorless.
HA is taken through the oral cavity which is the fastest and most effective way of consuming supplements 

a 12oz bottle of HA is available in the clinic for 65$
